In my previous blog posts I've talked about Synthesia, learning to play by ear, Youtube
and sheet music as my personal toolkit.

This is my personal method when I learn a new song:

1. I listen to the original song for a few times (Learn and play by ear).
2. I study the sheet music to help me understand the song.
3. I use Synthesia to help me out on the keys and notes.
4. I use Youtube tutorials to guide me through the fingering positions.
5. I use sheet music and/or Synthesia to practice the song.

You can read about these methods in the respective posts I made.


However, this post is about some handy tools which can help you with Youtube piano tutorials.

Youtube piano tutorial

When I learn a new song,
It's quite irritating to watch a video again and again on Youtube.
It's bad for my bandwith, and the Youtube player isn't very accurate in timing.
That's why I use software to download the videos to my hard disk.

o Personally I use Realplayer to snag my videos from the web.
o Or you can download one of the several Firefox plugins.
o Another handy plugin is this improved Youtube search plugin.

Good luck, and feel free to ask your questions if you have any!
